Repeated episodes of sudden sharp stabbing pain in chest on golfing, subsides within an hour. No signs later. What could it be?

While golfing.I swung and felt a somewhat sharp pain lower rt side below rib cage. Continued to play. A week later while playing...after 13 holes, hit a drive and almost went down..pain was like someone stabbed me. An hour later it was like it never happened. Didn t play again for 8 days even though I had NO discomfort. Then played ...8 holes NO problems at all. The out of the blue...with only a short 30 yd shot it happened again. Strange part is an hour later..nothing. And nothing since....any ideas?

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

The description is highly suggestive of muscle pain – spasm, sprain...

You have not stated your personal habits, family history, or co-morbidities, even age or gender...which could influence the diagnosis and outcome...

See an Internist / get yourself examined / at times, basic investigation may be necessary...
Over The Counter (OTC) Non Steroidal Anti Inflammatory Drugs (NSAID) / muscle relaxants / anxiolytics will be useful in the meanwhile...
The treating doctor alone can suggest further based on his assessment of the situation.

Take care     
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
